Bringing reliable wireless connectivity with wide coverage, high capacity and low latency to digital mines
In January 2019, Komatsu announced the mining industry’s first Autonomous Haulage System (AHS) running on Nokia Industrial-grade Private Wireless technology. It is enabling ultra-high system availability and reliability across Komatsu’s commercial operations, while upholding the company’s renowned safety standards.
Today, more than half of Komatsu’s production sites in North America, Latin America and Australia are running on Nokia 4.9G/LTE.
Read this case study to learn why mine-wide connectivity with seamless worksite mobility and enterprise-grade security is a key component of any AHS deployment, and how 4.9G/LTE has proven to the ideal technology to provide Komatsu with the standards-based features that today’s proprietary point-to-multipoint networks simply aren’t capable of delivering.
